Path is getting overgrown

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 1 minute later. ref: 1681491.

Please cut the footpath between Station Rd, Oundle (pe84de) and the road that turns off the a605 to Tansor & Cotterstock. I've done the bit along side Laxton Drive once, but i don't have the right tools...can you now take responsibility? Thanks@

  • The public footpath ME7 (runs between the corner of the unnamed road, to Tansor and Cotterstock from the A605, and Station Road, behind the Laxton Drive development and the Old Station House) is extremely overgrown and impassable to all but the most determined adult. The northern entry to the footpath is no longer visible. The footpath is also very uneven and riddled with rabbit hole in places, so there is a significant risk of injury to any-one who attempts to use it because the pathway is obscured. This footpath provides a short cut and safe route to avoid the A605 for pedestrians between Oundle and the outlying villages and it's condition has been reported a number of times in the past. It is now high time that this footpath is restored to use-able condition. Would you please give this high priority and identify the date when this will be done?

  • Unable to carry out routine mowing due to obstructing vegetation. Further clearance works have been programmed for this path.

  • Pleased to note hat clearance works have been scheduled, although it should have been clear from previous reports that mowing would not be sufficient. However, the question remains: when will this be carried out?
